Myth 4: When it comes to the issue of recycling, the collective imagination linked the issue to poor people opening bags of garbage or just a waste collecting and selling for a few pesos. Recycling in Colombia is linked to poverty and Myth 5: While recovering in recycling materials from domestic and industrial consumption for processing, we insist on using the word “waste”, although we had already decided that no are to separate. Around the same time that all this happened, someone asked me to help him create a recycling company, which I thought was interesting because in this way could address the issue from another perspective and strategic criteria and principles under differentiators. Taking into account the projects in which I am involved, he felt that this was a very good choice because it could innovate in the management and could generate social and technical processes are very interesting. Cardiologist has much to offer in this field. This proposal I made to someone else to know whether it could strengthen the project, to which he replied that it might be interesting as long as not “simply serve to recyclers.” So what? To recap, the five myths are as follows Anything other than landfill disposal is recycling Different waste management systems are considered exclusive, if it worked in another country also going to work here, Recycling in Colombia is associated with poverty.

Recycling incorrectly handles the concept of waste. Given the above, there is evidence that misuse of the word recycling and erroneous association of the socioeconomic. On the other hand, there is a clear tendency to import technologies that work under conditions of production and consumption different from those of Latin America. Likewise we see that there is a perception articulated with different processes for waste management, as the associate as options and not as integrated and complementary processes that must run in for good measure. Analyzing all this I concluded that you and I really do not recycle the waste generated in our homes, just separate them and the gentleman whom we call “recycling” does not recycle, he picks up the waste. Generalizing the concepts, we might say that what we call “recycling chain (misconceptions that proxina explain in a footnote) could be called the” waste management system of a city. ” From this perspective you are the primary manager of the materials produced due to the daily consumption of goods and services. To assume primary responsibility as a manager, your commitment should materialize in three types of actions: Select products and services that generate the least waste of materials and manage the simplest way possible (eg organic products, with few wrappings, without additives, chlorine-free soaps, etc) Managing materials so that they do not mix with the waste, Find the most suitable materials managers and committed to ensure that these materials are appropriate treatment and thus help the system work efficiently. In an upcoming entry will expand this information and identify the key managers involved in this system for handling commodities from consumption. The use and appropriate application of concepts gives us a real vision (or approximate to the reality) of the topic we are discussing, so we can direct our efforts towards the right decisions in this case towards a Sustainable Humanity.
